Young Bulma wants to control the Dragon Balls: 7 magical spheres that grant any wish to whoever gathers them. When she meets Goku, a boy who owns one of these spheres, they embark on a journey full of adventures and battles in search of the remaining Dragon Balls that are scattered around the globe.
Along the way they meet allies like Oolong the pig, Yamcha the thief and his partner Puar, Goku’s future wife Chichi, and his friend and rival Krilin. They also meet enemies and cruel villains ready to take innocent lives, razing entire cities and challenging the heroes in order to control the Dragon Balls and satisfy their evil goals.
Trained by Master Roshi, a tortoise-man also known as the God of Martial Arts, Goku will become a powerful fighter and participate in the universally prestigious Martial Arts Tournament.
